now to debate those issues, chuck schumer of new york and newly elected republican senator ted cruz of texas. welcome back as senator cruz to "meet the press." back to both of you. i want to start on the gun debate. because as i say, even before the second term is officially underway thissy is bait is well underway. here are the highlights of what the president wants to accomplish. universal background checks. he'd like to pursue a ban on high capacity magazines. an assault weapons ban that lapsed in 2004. and he'd like stricter laws on gun trafficking. but senator schumer, just as i challenged wayne lapierre of the nra very hard when this came up, i challenge you as well with a question of, is this really going to make a difference? and rich lawry wrote something that caught my attention in "the national review." no one can write a law against mothers owning guns that one day might be turned against them by deranged sons who then commit horrific acts of murder-suicide. shooting rampages are hard to prevent because they are so often committed by young men with no criminal records wh
in part deal with sequestration and deal with the issue of -- >> but senator schumer, the reality is the president is willing to throw the long ball on this big sunday of football, when it comes to gun control. and yet because of his view of republican recalcitrants, he doesn't step up and show real leadership and be proactive on a big spending cut proposal and medicare put proposal because he doesn't want to go there. why throw the long ball when it comes to gun control but not take a leadership role when it comes to spending cuts? >> well, he is. in the negotiations up to the fiscal cliff, the president put things on the table. $400 billion in medicare cuts. he was talking about change cpi, which -- >> you're talking about more revenue. that's not big enough on medicare cuts according to simpson-bowles and others. >> we have already done $1.7 trillion in cuts. we've done $600 billion in revenues. you're going to need more revenues as well as more cuts to get the deficit down. and i've talked to leader reid. i've talked to budget chair murray. we're going to do a budget this year
, senator schumer said, we'll do a budget. >> great. finally. it's been four years. >> but this is what he said has to be in it. >> you're going to need more revenue as well as more cuts to get the deficit down. i've talked to leader reid. budget claire murray. we're going to do a budget this year, and it's going to have revenues in it. and our republican colleagues better get used to that. >> so this is still a fight between how much spending cuts and how much taxes. the president got his -- >> well, simpson 3w0-bowles sai let's get rid of the high tax rates. the president doesn't want that. you had $1 trillion in tax increases with obama care. new tax increases at the beginning of this month. and now they are calling for even more tax increases, and they are not calling to cut spending. they are calling for spending increases. so basically what they're saying is, they want americans to pay more so washington can spend more. that's not going to help the economy, and that is not going to close the gap and balance the budget. the reason we want to balance the budget is not to make the numbe
with the kind of credibility with the troops that chuck hagel has. >> chuck schumer, speaking of chucks, another chuck, ari, chuck schumer, as you know, a very strong supporter of israel, very tough on iran and its nuclear program. he had a private meeting with hagel, emerged strongly endorsing hagel, saying he'll vote to confirm him. you read that long statement that schumer put out on what he was told by hagel during the course of that private meeting. i rey sum that's reassuring. i assume that's reassuring to you. is it reassuring enough for republicans to vote to confirm him? >> no, i think hagel has broken the land speed record for the most apologies on a way to a hopeful confirmation. i've never heard of a nominee who has apologized to so many different people for so many different positions he's took over his career in order for him to get confirmed. i suspect this is more a confirmation conversion than anything heartfelt from hagel. that's why he's saying this. explaining away everything. if i were a senator, what i would do with hagel is keep my questions very short, make no speeches an
-- >> you're announcing this week? >> yeah, we'll be -- senator menendez and i and senator schumer, senator graham, senator durbin and some -- we are -- we've been working together for some weeks now. we'll be coming forward. it's not that much different from what we tried to do in 2007. martha, what's changed is honestly is that there is a new i think appreciation on both sides of the aisle, including maybe more importantly on the republican side of the aisle, that we have to enact a comprehensive immigration reform bill. we've been -- >> so this is comprehensive. it's not piecemeal. >> yeah, this piecemeal stuff, the way the senate works, very briefly, is that you bring up one section of it, someone has an amendment that brings up another part of it. >> we've seen a lot of that lately. we've definitely seen a lot of that lately. but what about a path to citizenship? >> that has to be also part of it, but from my perspective also, and i'm sure senator menendez understands as senator schumer and durbin do that my state, most of the drugs now coming across the mexican border into the united
on getting spending down. >> here is the leverage question. senator schumer said we didn't just get our revenues. we got some. there has to be more that are part of it. the president will say that. so as you are -- >> are we for more revenue? no, we are not. >> even if it's from tax reform? >> if you keep raising revenues, you're not going to get different tax reform. i know you didn't want a chart, but i'm kind of a chart guy. this dream line shows you the historic taxes. the red line is tax increases. the red line, where spending is going. spending is the problem. revenues aren't the problem. if you keep chasing higher spending with higher revenues as they're calling for, you're going to hurt economic growth. you'll never catch up. you'll shut down the economy and you won't get the budget down. >> when you were campaigning in virginia, a state you wanted to carry but didn't, you said, look, these sequestration cuts, these automatic spending cuts that are put in place because republicans and democrats can't agree, so you have to have this sword that comes down, you said we're not going
of the national anthem. her performance also seemed to catch the eye of senator chuck schumer. he was also behind the dazzling diva stealing a bit of the spotlight with that face. president clinton didn't want to miss the chance of seeing kelly clarkson up close and personal. he was caught sneaking a peek out of line. >>> obama's brother-in-law, craig robinson, was hamming it up over the president's shoulder. >>> eric cantor was caught making some sour faces during richard blanco's reading of the inaugural poem. doesn't look like he's a fan. >>> and from a frequent critic of president obama, conservative tact activist grover norquist feeted, "it is official. the best after-party tonight was chicago mayor rahm's." >>> for a look at the national forecast, we turn to dylan dreyer. >> good morning. it ended up being nice. >> dry and pretty warm. >> and temperatures were above average yesterday, but today the 20s will start working into the nation's capital. also 20s to take told across the northeast and even single dimgis through the northern plains. that cold air crossing over the great lakes which

in their judgment. well, new york democrat senator chuck schumer calling the bipartisan blueprint a major breakthrough. he claims his fellow democrats are not looking to play politics with this plan. >> we do not want immigration as a wage issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that solves the problem and becomes law. it is our hope that these principles can be turned into legislation by march and have a markup by chairman leahy with the goal of passage out of the senate by late spring or summer. lou: senator mccain bluntly acknowledged the republican party has been losing support of hispanic voters and says this agreement will change all that. >> the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens. and we realize that in many issues which we think we are in agreement with our hispanic citizens, you will find that this agreement has very little difference from that of the legislation that was led by senator kennedy some years ago. lou: meanwhile, we will be joined by one of the leaders of the efforts to, working for a year on the republican proposal, adamantly opposi
: that will be on c-span 3 today at 11:00 eastern time. rip mccarthy, representative schumer, the police chief in philadelphia. we want you to phone in to this segment. we are going to get into the politics of gun control. let people know that we have a fourth line for this particular segment for gun owners. we found the story in "thew new york times." as we get into the politics and what might be doable, the headline says -- would you think is going to be doable here on the hill? guest: he says he represents a state that has many gun owners themselves. when you actually talk to gun owners and nra members, they support by large majorities sensible and strengthening the current gun laws. what they support, 82% of gun owners, 72% of members actually support universal background checks. we are trying to keep guns and weapons out of the hands of dangerous people, criminals, and the seriously mentally ill. when you talk to people in west virginia, gun owners themselves want to be able to have guns in their homes. they also want to ensure that those guns do not fall into the hands of people who shou
of the leadership in the democratic side. senator schumer from new york who helped me in 1993 by headlining, or i should say leading the effort in the house of representatives which was successful. senators blumenthal and chris murphy, distinguished senators from connecticut who know first-hand about sexual weapons. you will hear from congresswoman mccarthy from new york. as well as congressman ed perlmutter from colorado who represents aurora. s also congresswoman esty who respects newtown. you will hear from commissioner charles ramsey of the philadelphia police department, the current president of the major police chiefs association who will speak about the display of weapons you see to my left. finally, we will hear from victims of recent mass shootings. i would like to recognize supporters who are here today. on the risers behind me we have police officers from several departments and i so thank you for joining us today. [applause] i would also like to recognize a million moms for gun control who are represented by mrs. sandberg today. doctors for america and the american federation of teach
i've been honored to join chuck schumer of new york and bob menendez of new jersey. on the republican side, john mccain of arizona, lindsey graham of south carolina, marco rubio of florida. pretty interesting group; right? pretty interesting political spectrum represented by these six senators. for the last few months we've been sitting down and working out a statement of principles about immigration reform. and today we unveiled those principles. we have a lot of work to do. we still have to write the law and we still have to bring it to the senate to be debated and to be passed. i don't assume for a minute that we're going to have every senator supporting it on both sides of the aisle. that would be too much to consider or to ask. but i know from listening to the speeches that were given by senator sessions of alabama, senator vitter of louisiana, they have many questions that they want to ask about how we approach immigration reform. so let me try, if i can, to speak to some of the basics that are included in our effort. first, when i listened to the senator from
" and "roll call." chuck schumer just said the republicans brinked. did they blink, susan, and does it matter if they did? >> i think a big recalbraigz on their part. they find themselves on the defensive when it comes to the debt ceiling issue. remember how they vowed they would only raise the debt ceiling by a dollar for every dollar cut in spending. now they said never mind. we'll push that down the road. the big fight will be on the sweeping spending cuts that go into effect march 1 and on the government funding that runs out on march 27. march is going to be the month to watch, and it's a month that could end in a government shutdown. >> ifill: is it the kind of fight the republicans want to have to redefine themselveses? >> i think they do. gwen, i think you have to know when to hold them and know when to fold them. yes, the republicans folded on this wise wisely. finally, i think they got some smart on this. you have to pick your fights. they need a breather now. they've been on the defense for a year on tax cuts for millionaires, on toughness, shutting down the government, they're not
, it sort of blows my mind when i look at the roster here. we have chuck schumer of new york, we have dick durbin of illinois, robert menendez of new jersey. and on the other side, we have serious conservatives like jeff lake and marco rubio. left/right coalition on immigration, mark. how does that work? >> i think it speaks to the ideological diversity of our country and, actually, the evolution of the senate now. and, you know, you see senate republicans that used to treat compromise like a dirty word and now they're coming out and putting forward a proposal with their democratic colleagues that to a large degree mirrors the key principles that the president has identified. i do agree this is a golden opportunity for senators like marco rubio and with the other guests that mentioned that, but i do disagree that the president hasn't shown leadership here. he has been talking about comprehensive immigration reform as a key priority of the first, you know, as the beginning of the second term. so i think that what the senate democrats and republicans have done is gotten out in front and tryi
in there. schumer, mccain, rubio.menendez. it feels to me as if a month of sundays may have just hit the calendar. the stars are aligning. it does feel different. whether it's going to be enough i don't know. i think republicans have really been sobered by the last election results. i think they feel they have to do something. seeing leadership from people like marco rubio i think really does give a lot of republicans who might have doubts otherwise a real chance to think again. >> the credibility, the aura, the halo that may be needed here. jackie, those eight senators we were showing are putting their bipartisan plan out the day before the president is scheduled to outline his immigration proposal in a speech in las vegas. what are you seeing in the timing? are they trying to triang late? >> it shows momentum on this issue. here's the thing which has been the hitch on a couple different things this year already. the house. the house is going to be hard to get this through the house. it's going to be hard to get some house republicans on board. but the fact you have this bipartisan
the john kerry hearings. in the end, the numbers. once senator schumer democrat said he answered all my questions, we know there have been meetings with others who have been critical and others with john mccain. he has done a lot of leg work and going into it, i don't think that mean that is it will be smooth sailing. they will be very tough questions and in the end they thought that he would be confirmed. >> how many republicans will vote to confirm him. we will find out. who is coming up on state of the union? >> dianne feinstein will talk about a number of things including the automatic weapons ban, but we will have on as well as former general hayden. we wanted to talk about women in the military. they are uniquely qualified to look at this and say how does it change things? we will have that and a group of republicans that come on from the outside. the virginia governor to tell us how they think they can fix the party from the outside. >> 9:00 a.m. eastern. we will be watching. thanks. >> today an appeals court handed the president a stinging defeat for the panel unanimously rule a
for them. for chuck schumer to say they were going to pass a budget anyway tells you the strategy might be working. however your question is very valid. because i have a same concerns. you know, they have caved every single time in the last two years. and i have made it very explicit to them that i'm with them on the issue because i believe there's -- i believe there's statements they're not going to cave again. but that day cave again they're going to have some problems in the house. it they going to have -- because there's a large number of members of the house of representatives and house members dissatisfied with what is hooping. and they're believing that the leadership is changing what they, you know, the strategy changing their negotiation tactic. i'm optimistic. like i said before, i think they have to prove themselves. leadership comes not from the demanding leadership it comes from having the people you're leading trust you. that's the only way you can follow is if you have trust in your leadership. i don't have that trust 100%. what i also -- i believe enough that they want t
, watch that today. dianne feinstein has been for these bills for a long time. senator chuck schumer for this issue for a long time. carol mccarthy of new york from the house side of democrat for gun control for a long time. where are the new faces? people like joe manchin, a democrat, saying look at these things. none are saying, let's pass all these things that the president wants. let's look a map of the democrats. we can show you at least 11 vulnerable democratic incumbents. those are at least 11 democratic seats up in 2014. senator from alaska has said no thank you. montana, max baucus has said, i'm not sure we want to do gun control. republicans are saying that we're going to see what harry reid in the senate does and the expectation is at best he could get a very watered down version. no assault weapons ban, maybe progress on background checks and the republicans around the house, from what they are saying, we'll have our committees look at these issues but we're not going to think about voting on a bill until the senate proves it can pass something. on this day, we'll see if
quite clearly. but then the question is eric holder wanted to try him in the u.s. and charles schumer got wobbly, everyone ran away from it, they tried and tried and tried. let's say you try him in the u.s. the first day there's going to be a procedural hearing saying you cannot admit the things that you got out of my client when he was being tortured which is the hearing happening tomorrow. so what should they be doing with him. if you bring him into a civilian court and they say you tortureded ksm, the law says you've got to let him free. >> the law doesn't say that. it should in my view, if you torture somebody, they should be released. >> even khalid sheikh mohammed. >> he's not subject to this law. i'm saying what u.s. law should be if i were writing law. the point is it doesn't say that. the point is if someone is tortured, you can't use what you get under torture. they have a lot of things on ksm without having to use what they got during torture. >> so having conversations for ten years -- >> and they have got this all on tape. >> so the point is that khalid sheikh mohammed co

. senator schumer is leading a group that senator flake is part of. i think we can get this done. >> jeff, can the president drag the unions along to get them supporting real immigration reform? >> remember, in the last four years, we haven't had a comprehensive plan put forward because the unions don't want guest worker plan or temporary -- >> why not? they just don't want more workers in the workplace? >> i believe on the high-tech side, there's some in my party that say let's not have any new. >> thank god we didn't have that in world war ii where einstein ended up in austria. >> my own view is if they're willing to come here or stay here after they've received a ph.d. from our universities, roll out the red carpet and don't try to count that against other visas that have been offered. >> think about the best and the brightest in this country. think about the high-tech companies in this country that have revolutionized the way we live, the way we work, whether you're talking about yahoo! or google or intel, go tech company after tech company after tech company. >> there are companies i
